What is the island where Ançec is located called *here*? Is it Kerkyra? What is the islands name in Xliponian? BPJ 03:45, 12 Jul 2005 (PDT)


Yes, it's Kérkyra. Ançec is the name both of the province (which encompasses that island and the smaller surrounding ones) and its capital. The island proper is called Horebi [stress on the e], from the Byzantine name Korevi "peaks", referring to the twin towers of the town's citadel. Corfu, the Italian name, is a corruption of Korevi. Herodotus had already mentioned Korkyra around 740 BCE. Kyrmse 05:20, 12 Jul 2005 (PDT)
